Side Sounds #005 | Noise In My Head (Michael Kucyk)

  Noise in My Head is the brainchild of Michael Kucyk, a legend in Australia’s subterranean music scene. Impeccable selector, former 3RRR and NTS radio host and current founder of the label Efficient Space, his ‘freeform sonic excursion’ introduced a generation to rare finds, unexplored genres and artists from around the globe. Kucyk has always treaded the line of if-you-know-you-know status. For this edition, Kucyk has curated a decompression session centred around a "late-night swim at home". “I wanted to do something different as I’m generally in a pretty introspective listening mood these days. I tried to keep it always flowing – jazz into dream-pop, into reggae/dub, into Latin American magic, into folk rock, into loner garage” explains Kucyk. “Incidentally, there are a lot of references to the sun but it's best listened to alone in the dark, in a body of water” Throughout his radio show, NIMH brought together producers, DJs, and selectors from all over the world, establishing connections between Australia, Japan, Germany, Sweden, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, the United States and beyond. Before ending its objective in November 2018, the carefully curated show was broadcast on London digital institution NTS. ”Noise In My Head was first and formally a radio show that ran for 13 years. It was never one thing, constantly shape-shifting as I breathed in my surroundings and shared new discoveries (often via a network of friends). I use the NIMH handle to DJ a few times a year, but these days Efficient Space absorbs all my focus.” Predominantly devoted to rescuing recordings from history’s cracks and crevices while making select ventures into modern music, the imprint has released Yolngu songmen Waak Waak Djungi, fashion photographer-turned-blues guitarist Steve Hiett, and dub mystic YL Hooi.
